If he can change them into an effective defensive team while grinding it out they have a punchers chance.
They have a second distinct advantage: Duncan. Duncan is not Perkins or Ibaka. He'll be the best post player Miami's ever opposed in the playoffs (sorry D12).
Miami hasn't faced D12 in the playoffs. In 2011 Orlando lost to the Hawks in the first round and Dwight was hurt last year.
